Mental Health Evaluations
Mental Health evaluations are therapeutic in nature and are not focused on the forensics. Rather this evaluation focuses on assessing your mental health status. A mental health evaluation may include:
- Reviewing medical documentation
- Objective testing such as an assortment of mental health inventories
- Taking a family history
This information assists me with establishing a fair diagnosis of the condition of your mental health.
Domestic Violence Evaluations

I offer PTSD counseling to most anyone; however, my specialty is military trauma. I use an eclectic approach to trauma counseling which includes Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and other related Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I use insights gained from my own personal combat experiences to help you with the processing of trauma memories based on combat or other military experiences.
